Somebody Up There Hates You

by Hollis Seamon

In many ways, Richard Casey is a typical teenage boy: he hates rules, he likes having fun, and he has a crush on a cute girl. But Richie has terminal cancer, and his crush, Sylvie, lives across the hall in their hospice unit. As Richie says, “Chemo, radiation, a zillion surgeries . . . watching your mom age twenty years in twenty months . . . If that’s part of the Big Dude’s plan, well, then it’s pretty obvious, isn’t it?” Somebody up there hates you. This is an unflinching and empowering novel about living as much as you can before time runs out, and sure to appeal to fans of John Green.
